Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major-General Mohammad Bagheri is scheduled to pay an official visit to Pakistan in a bid to develop military and defense diplomacy of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Bagheri has been invited by Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa. The trip to the neighboring country will kick off on Tuesday.
Heading a high-ranking military and security delegation, the Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces is going to meet with a number of top political, security, and military officials in Pakistan.
He will hold talks with Pakistan’s prime minister, army chief, chief of staff of the armed forces, as well as certain military officials, during his stay in Islamabad, capital city of the neighboring state.
The Iranian delegation is going to pay visits to Karachi in southern Pakistan and some marine and military headquarters.
This round of trip to the eastern neighboring country is in line with strengthening military, defense, and security collaborations between the two important Muslim nations.
Political and military experts are of the opinion that the upcoming visit of Iranian delegation to Pakistan amid recent developments in the Islamic world, especially in Afghanistan, would be influential in the future of the region.
Bagheri’s visit to Pakistan is of great importance because of growing military, security, and defense ties between Islamabad and Tehran in recent years.
The trip also indicates that Pakistani and Iranian military officials are determined to cooperate in order to expand capacities to enhance security in joint border areas, help regional tranquility, restore security and stability in Afghanistan, as well as hold consultations on problems of the Islamic world and show commitment to the fight against terrorism.
